Saratoga Springs, NY asked in Real Estate Law for Wisconsin

Q: Sold our home & after 3 months they are coming after us saying heating system didn't work or stove,it was nov when SOLD

It worked perfectly when we moved. It was Nov and of course we were using heat. Also saying that the stove was missing the heating element, I made pies 8 days earlier. Saying freezer unusable. Buyers from "heck". They are lying. Now he said he already put in a whole new heating system and wants us to pay for it. Said it was like that when he moved in but took 3 months to tell us.Our heating system was a boiler system and outside wood stove. If he didn't take care of the woodstove and keep it running at all times in winter it would freeze up. If your not going to run it then you need to drain it and just run furnace down basement. I told him all instructions on woodstove would be left in home when we moved.The oven and freezer worked perfectly. Who on earth would remove heating element? We think they are damaging home to go after us for $$.We listed with large realtor co, house was very neat and clean. Have witnesses that the night before we moved wood stove worked and heat worked fine

A: The problem with lawsuits like this is that they are expensive. You may have insurance that will provide you with a defense. I suggest you contact the insurance company you had at the time.
